Collard, Ian Hi Ian,I played with you in a team at Pontins holiday camp in Brixham Devon it also included Tony Brown, Gerry Hurshall & one other tall lad. You were all so impressed with me you were going to get me to WBA. I was at Watford at the time. Sadly I failed my fitness test but saw the final in 1968 as tickets sent to me and guess who was sat behind me? Winnie! What memories, have a photo of all 4 of you by the pool! We did meet again at Pontins. It’s been a long time but would be great to hear from you
